In the world of social media, first impressions are everything. How your channels look at first glance will determine whether a viewer likes what they see and continues browsing through your account, or bounces off your site! What is the first thing that users notice about your social channels? The photos you use to represent your brand. Make sure your profile picture and cover photo are following the correct dimensions for each channel to ensure the best quality of the photos.

In social media, sizing is everything. Do you know what the best sizes for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube are? No problem. We’ve got you covered! Follow these dimensions when setting up your company’s social media channels for a consistent and professional look:

When choosing photos for your social channels, keep these dimensions in mind for your images to be displayed with the best quality possible. We all want the best looking social media, and these rules and guidelines will help your social media look its best.

When we want to design our photos to the correct size, we either use Photoshop or the design website Canva. Canva is free and allows you to put the exact dimensions you need into the site along with the photo you want to use. This will crop your photos to the perfect dimensions for each of your social media channels.
